"Fear is a very foolish way to rule a nation, because fear is very tiring over time. No matter how tyrannical the despot, no matter how great the imposed terror; there comes a time when the people simply lack the energy to be afraid any longer, Fear vanishes from the population, and all that is left is blind uncompromising unquenchable rage." -- Michael Rivero
Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s (D-NY) office urged his Democrat colleagues to distract from his fire alarm incident by writing on social media that Republicans should focus on the “Nazi members of their party before anything else.”
The New York judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s jury-free fraud trial is a lifelong Democratic donor who has spent thousands of dollars on partisan political contributions, according to campaign finance records.
Clothing brand Abercrombie and Fitch has said that it has recruited an 'outside law firm' in order to investigated the shocking allegations of grooming and other sex crimes allegedly perpetrated by former CEO Mike Jeffries.
The allegations were made in a BBC documentary that aired in the UK on Monday night. The film accused Jeffries and his partner Matthew Smith holding sex events around the world in which young men were forced into intimate acts.
A total of twelve men came forward for the documentary, half of them said that they were lied to about the nature of the parties they were asked to attend. While others said that they feared for their future careers if they did not participate in the acts.
Jeffries ruled over Abercrombie and Fitch from the 1990s until 2014, transforming it from a struggling clothing brand to one of the trendiest in the United States. During his career, Jeffries was accused discrimination, opulence and allowing his partner, Smith, to have influence over the company.
A New York judge ordered the state to pay nearly half a million dollars in legal feels to the National Rifle Association (NRA) after the gun rights group won a major case at the Supreme Court.
In a case decided last summer, the Supreme Court ruled that a New York public carry licensing law was unconstitutional and that the ability to carry a pistol in public was a constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
The NRA was a party in that case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, and last week a New York judge ordered the state to pay $447,700.82 in legal fees.
As is by now well known, very few of the millions of Muslims who have been arriving in Europe are true “asylum seekers,” though a great many claim to be; they are very rarely fleeing persecution and murder. They are, instead, economic migrants, eager to batten on the benefits that the generous welfare states of western Europe provide. These include free or greatly-subsidized housing, free medical care, free education (including vocational training), unemployment benefits (even without a work history in Europe), family allowances, and more. But for some Muslims, even that largesse is not enough. They want more, and they supplement their welfare benefits with the proceeds from street robberies and house burglaries. Muslims in France, though only 10% of the population, make up 50-60% of the prisoners. In the UK., Muslims are 4% of the population, but 25% of prisoners. In Germany, Muslims are 5% of the population, and 23% of prisoners. Muslims committing crimes of property often use violence to intimidate their victims. In one city in Germany, having lost faith in the police’s ability to adequately protect the population from this Muslim crime wave, older students, and parents, too, have organized patrols and self-defense groups.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) has revealed the contents of an official 2017 report from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) under Dr. Anthony Fauci. It includes a warning about the lack of training at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China.
“It is clear to me by talking to the technician that there certainly is a need for training support.”
Dr. Ping Chen, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
“It is clear to me by talking to the technician that there certainly is a need for training support," wrote Dr. Ping Chen of NIAID.
Johnson, the lead Republican on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and National Institutes of Health (NIH) Acting Director Lawrence Tabak, reiterating multi-year requests for an interview with and records from Dr. Chen regarding her 2017 WIV safety concerns.
President Donald Trump’s campaign demanded on Monday night that the Republican National Committee immediately cancel all remaining primary debates and direct all of their resources to ensuring election “integrity.”
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to comment on a Democratic lawmaker who pulled a fire alarm over the weekend in a House office building as House Democrats were looking to delay voting on a Republican short-term spending bill to keep the government open.
A number of new laws are now in effect, as of Sunday. Arguably the most controversial centers around changes to Florida’s death penalty. Child rapists can now face execution for their crimes.
The law specifically pertains to child victims under the age of 12. Higher courts have already said imposing death sentences in these types of cases is a violation of the 8th Amendment. While some say the law is still a measure of protecting children, others say different.
A new investigative report claims thousands of illegal immigrants are buying land and settling in a new development called Colony Ridge, located near Plum Grove, Texas.
According to The Daily Wire, the new Colony Ridge settlement, with potentially tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, is being built north of Houston, prompting concerns that the development could become a base for cartel operations due to its location roughly 400 miles inside the United States.
In an investigative report, the Daily Wire found that the Colony Ridge development is currently comprised of over 60 square miles, which is roughly the size of Washington, D.C. The population is estimated to be between 50,000 and 75,000, largely due to a marketing strategy that is aimed at the Hispanic population in Texas.
The Colony Ridge development is owned by developer William Harris. Under his leadership, the development is quickly expanding, partly due to a financing opportunity that allows illegal aliens to purchase land in Texas.
Webmaster addition: Please tell me how illegal immigrants, supposedly fleeing poverty, have the money to buy a house?!?

If you want to accomplish something that the masses oppose, then how will you do it? The first and most important thing is to conceal yourself as the source of the objective. In this case, we are talking about a political objective. It’s no surprise that there are people who want to have total power. History has given us Alexander the Great, Caesar, and more recently Hitler and Mao. These people are just figure heads. They could never have acceeded to power had they not been supported by others.
The “others” in this case are wealthy people who act in concert (conspiracy if you will) to strengthen their reach and capabilities while at the same time reinforcing each other when accusatory fingers are pointed at them. In our more modern era, how do you do that? You get control of the engines of power which include; government, industry, energy, information, food, water, medicine, education, and just for grins entertainment.
Think about it – is our government responding to the will of the people? Is it the people who are clamoring for the elimination of meat, bugs to eat, flouride in the water, open borders, monolithic media, criminals running through the street, homeless populations taking over city centers and now even rural areas and small towns, GMO foods, masks, vaccines, central bank digital currency (CBDC), elimination of fossil fuels and the accompanying automobiles, stoves, water heaters etc.? Certainly, the “Establishment” (those wealthy people united in purpose), has helped to create a “false” impression of that demand, but they are failing, and they know it, and that’s why they always have a series of back up plans which are all well rehearsed.
These same wealthy people have a history of financing “false opposition”, so they control the people and or organizations that say they stand for what the people want, but then they betray those people just at the right time. House leader Kevin McCarthy is just one of a myriad of examples. Trump is questionable – remember these are people who have the ability to assemble the “best and the brightest” as they are referred to. They already have the lion’s share of the world’s wealth. They will not be happy with anything less than everything, and when they have everything, they will still not be happy because they do not have Jesus Christ in their lives. What value is there in having it all if you’ve sold your soul to the Devil and have an eternity in Hell to face?
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will be able to keep exploring its exotic environs for at least another five years.
The agency announced on Friday (Sept. 29) that it will keep New Horizons' lights on while it's still zooming through the Kuiper Belt, the expansive ring of icy bodies beyond Neptune's orbit.
"The New Horizons mission has a unique position in our solar system to answer important questions about our heliosphere and provide extraordinary opportunities for multidisciplinary science for NASA and the scientific community," Nicola Fox, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, said in a statement on Friday. (The heliosphere is the big bubble of magnetic fields and charged particles that the sun blows around itself. Beyond it lies interstellar space.)
"The agency decided that it was best to extend operations for New Horizons until the spacecraft exits the Kuiper Belt, which is expected in 2028 through 2029," Fox added.
Cargo volumes at the Port of New York and New Jersey fell 21% YoY to 662,740 TEUs in August as the seaport adjusts to lower retail volumes.
“Ahead of preparation for the holiday shopping season, U.S. retailers continued to draw from their overstock of inventory that was delivered during the record cargo surge over the past two years,” the port said in a press release.
President Joe Biden is planning to hold phone calls with allies possibly as early as Tuesday, with an aim of reassuring them his administration will remain committed to supporting Ukraine, Bloomberg reports.
The White House has further said it will unveil another defense package for Ukraine "soon" - which would be part of previously approved funds - in order to "signal our continued support." This comes immediately on the heels of Biden being forced by Congressional Republican holdouts to sign a stopgap funding bill that did not include aid for Ukraine.
Already as of last Friday, the Pentagon had informed Congress that it has "exhausted nearly all available security assistance funding for Ukraine" - including air defense weaponry and ammunition, leaving Ukraine more vulnerable as the Russian onslaught continues. Pentagon estimates indicate there are"months left" in its available supply of weapons for Kiev.
As Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro soar in popularity, the drugs are facing increasing scrutiny by regulators over reports of suicidal thoughts.
A recent Reuters analysis reveals that over half of the adverse event reports by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration describe suicidal thoughts arising soon after starting or ramping up doses of these injectable drugs.
About 40 percent found relief after quitting the meds or taking a smaller dose.
On Monday German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock issued an ultra-provocative statement which Moscow is sure to take as "fighting words". What's more is that the statement came while she was in Ukraine's capital for an unprecedented meeting of EU foreign ministers, who have newly committed themselves to supporting Kiev for as long as it takes, even as Washington appears to be stepping back. She said that the EU bloc will soon encompass lands "from Lisbon to Luhansk."
"Ukraine's future lies in the European Union, our community of freedom, and it will soon stretch from Lisbon to Luhansk," she said during a press conference. "It [Ukraine] also broadens its path to the EU with every village, every meter that it liberates, and every meter where it saves its people."
Security forces in Madagascar fired tear gas on opposition candidates leading a protest in the capital Antananarivo on Monday, amid rising political tensions ahead of presidential elections next month.
Eleven of the 13 presidential candidates in the running had called on supporters to march on the central May 13 square to protest what they have described as an "institutional coup" to favour incumbent Andry Rajoelina.
But law enforcement officers moved to disperse the crowd of a few hundred people before it reached the planned destination.
Former president and leading opposition figure Marc Ravalomanana, who was among the protesters, was led away to safety by his security detail.
The rally was not given the green light by authorities and hundreds of security forces patrolled the city centre in the morning.
